Stubbs the Mayor


In this Wednesday, July 11, 2012 photo provided by Sandy Bubar, a cat named Stubbs lies on a tarp in an alley in Talkeetna, Alaska. Locals know him as Mayor Stubbs, a 15-year-old yellow cat who has been overseeing the town since shortly after he was born. KTUU-TV reports that residents didn't like the candidates who were running for mayor years ago, so they encouraged enough people to elect Stubbs as a write-in candidate. Talkeetna is at the base of Mount McKinley and has nearly 900 residents. (AP Photo/Sandy Bubar)
